Shape Analysis and Tracking of Migrating Macrophages

Reyes-Aldasoro, C. C. ORCID: 0000-0002-9466-2018 (2018). Shape Analysis and Tracking of Migrating Macrophages. Poster presented at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), 4-7 Apr 2018, Washington, D.C., USA.


This work describes an algorithm to observe cell shape variation associated with migration. The algorithm iteratively segments, tracks and analyses the shape of macrophages in Drosophila melanogaster embryos. Analysis of shape, including the number of corners or pointy edges, rely on a novel approach to finding junctions, the anglegram matrix. The anglegram [1] IS a multiscale angle variation 2D matrix. It Iis constructed by calculating inner point angles alongside the boundaries of an object.
